Levine - Sex in video games is 'kind of silly right now'

“I think it’s not about being interactive. I think it’s more about people not understanding what it is. If you think about the amount of, for example, nudity in a videogame… it’s not even nudity. It’s a puppet with its clothes off. There are other problems as well. It’s kind of silly in videogames right now, because – again – puppets with their clothes off. It’s more like Team America. The sex scene in Team America as opposed to, you know, the sex scene in Black Swan. The fact that’s even controversial says that the perception of the industry is that we’re making toys or something, as opposed to making creative expressions for a range of audiences – including adults. I think there’s still some prudishness. There’s even some prudishness in the industry itself. I did an interview recently and someone pointed out, ‘Ken, you use a lot of foul language.’ And I was like, ‘Jesus, come on. We’re all big boys and girls here.’ If I’m going to drop an F-bomb, I’m going to drop an F-bomb. I’m a big boy and I get to do that. It’s one of the privileges of being an adult.” - Ken Levine

I can’t think of a sex scene in a video game where it didn’t serve more of a purpose than just fan service. Have you ever seen a truly moving, engaging sex scene in a game? A sex scene that actually added to the story or heightened the intensity of a storyline relationship?
